Outsourcing and Offshore


What Is Outsourcing?

What Is Outsourcing?

“Outsourcing is an agreement in which one company hires another company to be responsible for a planned or existing activity that is or could be done internally and sometimes involves transferring employees and assets from one firm to another.
Outsourcing includes both foreign and domestic contracting and sometimes includes offshoring (relocating a business function to a distant country) or nearshoring (transferring a business process to a nearby country).”


There is a variety of advantages to offshore-outsourcing of specific business tasks and processes. The trend of outsourcing has continued to grow over the past decade with companies from a multitude of industries enjoying the benefits:.

  • Lower costs

    Companies choose outsourcing to overseas is mostly because of the cost savings potential: cheaper labor and/or cheaper materials.

  • Expertise:

    Some companies have a lack of industry expertise in certain business tasks and combined cheap labor provides the company with a big advantage.
    On the other hand, most offshore, outsourcing companies have a pool of college/ universities graduated English-speaking professionals owning the qualified skills set; that makes it ideal for business process to be outsourcing efficient.

  • Flexibility - Labor

    Outsourcing allows a company high flexibility and quick “go to market”. Example, a company may need many software development experts for a period of 3-4 months to develop an application. It would be infeasible to hire people for only 6 months. Outsourcing, however, can provide flexibility so the company does not have to be concern about all staffing process: Recruitment and firing.

  • Focus and freedom of improving core competency

    Outsourcing provides companies with the ability to focus on their core business concerns. Focusing on improving core competency with what the company knows to do, by concentrating on core business expertise.

Vietnam a “small but mighty powerhouse” with “a highly adaptive approach to work and tech”.

The Vietnamese government has recognised the potential to be seen as a global software development leader – looking well beyond the “workshop of the world” capability and instead, building strong foundations for technology success.

With a pronounced skills shortage plaguing businesses all over the developed world, the Vietnamese government’s focus on ensuring all students start learning coding and logic from the age of 10 is a strategy that is beginning to pay serious dividends for both the countries population and the businesses who have identified the opportunities they represent.
